Yesterday I met a girl with the most shiny black and white coat named El, with chocolate eyes that sparkled with delight upon figuring out that she was going to the barnyard! El is a little pit mix girl that has grown up in our shelter. She's just about a year old now and is ready to blow this Popsicle stand for a home of her own! Things I have been told about her include the fact that she's a jumpy adolescent that calms down and is well behaved after having some play time to burn off her energy. Truer words may have never been spoken! El is a hoot. She does the best zoomies ever! I mean she does big ones and tiny tight circled one's all in the same breath. She loves to chase a ball and sometimes will even pick it up and carry it around with her. She knows the sit command and she is quite house trained. El is a feel good dog that loves people. She's going to make you feel good because seriously, how could you not feel good watching her enjoy life like she does. She's a free spirited girl that just needs a chance. So the one thing El doesn't have going for her is her relationships with other dogs, in that she would rather not have a relationship with them. El will need to be the only companion animal in the home. She should be fine with kids as she took every treat from me very gently which was totally unexpected as she's a typical teenage dog, but it was indeed a welcome surprise. I can easily see El being a great family dog that will grown up with the kids and teach them the joys of unconditional love that dogs are so wonderful at teaching.
